I own a Meizu M6 for quite a while and I’m very happy with this iPod alternative. Anyway I had the problem that Rhytmbox didn’t recognise it as a music player directly.

Some search on the net revealed that I simply have to create a new file on my device and that’s it.

What you have to do is the following:

  • create ```.is_audio_player``` in the root of your M6
  • change the file's content to the following
  • Restart Rhytmbox and you'll find your M6 in the device section

You can now nicely drag’n’drop your music to your device and it Rhythmbox puts it in the right folder.

Of course you can edit your /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-usb-music-players.fdi.
